What are allergy drops?

Allergy drops are also known as sublingual immunotherapy. The idea behind allergy drops is the same as allergy shots and involves gradual desensitization to certain allergens. Allergy drops are placed under the tongue daily and do not require administration in a healthcare provider’s office. However, there are not many allergens that are currently FDA-approved for allergy drops. Additionally, since allergy drops are newer, their long-term efficacy is unknown.
